A Day Out: Kampung Lorong Buangkok, Singapore’s Oldest, Last Surviving Village

19 December 2017

The origins of Kampung Lorong Buangkok – Singapore’s last surviving village – dates all the way back to the 1950s. 

Back then, Singapore still used only four digits instead of six for postal codes. And at the entrance of the village, an worn sign bearing the old four-digit postal code remains as a nostalgic reminder of yesteryear.

While there are still residents, mostly elderly folk, living in Kampong Lorong Buangkok, they welcome visitors to catch a glimpse of the place, and in doing so, take a peek into Singapore’s past.
